Photographing these masterpieces of mechanics and engraving is always a very exciting and satisfying task.    You have to actually dance with the lights around the subject, highlighting the design and finishing of the prized wood used for the stock, the steels of the barrels and the various components often with bluing or special finishing. The lights must be soft and enveloping to be sure to create pleasant shades, but, at the same time, tough and grazing in order to highlight the mechanical parts and the fine engravings without burning or overexposing the parts with gold.
